why let someone else have all the fun? the sometimes haphazard, never boring fun. the why can't it smell like this all the time fun. the learning the virtue of sharing fun. why let someone else have all the fun? that's no fun.
9:04 am
copying what we did. indiana get indiana, michigan and they become bright work states. illinois right to work states. illinois has a new republican
9:05 am
and they have their worst. >> one of the bigger transformations you have made is you are changing how the medicaid system works. when we come back i want to talk
9:06 am
in commend governor branstad montgomery branstad's longevity and public service has piqued the interest of others nationwide so one other leader talked to us. he thought he had spent a long time on the job. >> governor branstad, congratulations, my friend. i was feeling pretty good about being the longest-serving governor in texas history, then you had to go beat me by becoming the longest-serving governor in american history. you have led your great state through some extraordinary times, economic crisis and national disasters than you served proudly been went into the private sector and offered her service to lead i will back
9:07 am
you have done it at all it all with signature style, a farm boy's optimism for tomorrow and the quiet farmboy humility. i was not only one of the best run states in the nation's but a powerful example of how strong leadership can lead an economic revival. on behalf of all of our colleagues in the republican party and a lot of democrats also, let me say thank you for what you have accomplished and god bless you and your great state of iowa. by the way, as you get ready for the rose bowl, let me just add go hawks. >> he was a land office 15 years and you have 21 here. one of the bigger changes i've felt since covering it was changes in the medicaid system. obviously there is some banks as he moved to managed care on this. how will you manage how this
9:08 am
and measure how much money we save on this kick in the first thing is to manage the outcome. we able to improve the health of the people on medicaid? we have expanded medicaid over the last 30 years. we've had a lot of people ended up going back to the emergency room because there is not coordination of services and as a consequence you have one doctor prescribing something, another another thing and they might be in conflict with each other so the person ends up back in the hospital, emergency room and hospitalization cost a lot of money. 26 states have already done this managed care for medicaid and it's where you improve the healthy outcomes and also savings as well. we measure based on how healthy the medicaid population is and
9:09 am
medicaid costs are unsustainable. they're going up much faster than other things in the budget and that is eating into things like education but medicaid is getting a bigger and bigger share so by managing and improving the healthy outcomes, we also figure we can reduce the estimate for this first year which is only a half year of implementation for the fiscal year, $51 million. it is significance and we are looking forward to the experience of the other states and with one oh four: what going to the processing other art new hampshire north carolina and alabama to. >> but one of the worries is that when you make the switch businesses will cut services and that is how they will save money and you're talking about more than half a million people who are worried they will not get the same amount of care. >> actually, the program does not call for any cuts in services. that would've been the alternative.
9:10 am
we did start cutting services but we decided to go the route to better coordinate services in order to reduce duplication and reduce some of the expensive bad outcomes that have come from people having to go back to emergency rooms. and at the public hearing recently people came in from other states who have been on medicaid to point out how managed care actually helped them. people are not going to lose their doctor. we have already extended the reimbursement even for those who have not signed a contract. [all talking at once] >> are not going to lose your doctor either. >> that was a lie. [all talking at once] >> that's the system that we are developing now. the physician if they choose not to be part of the network, reimbursement would be last, but
9:11 am
they have plenty of time to study and review and you are seeing a lot of them signing up now. they've got an extra 90 days to get big day for you tomorrow but a big day for our state and 50 days, our most prestigious
9:12 am
when we come 2016 is going just like you predicted right? let's start with donald trump and hillary clinton's reaction to donald trump peaked donald j trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our countries representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> it is not only shameful, it's dangerous. so when he says he wants to stop
9:13 am
united states, that runs counter to what i and others who have actually been in the situation room making hard choices know we had have to do. >> governor, you said you don't think trouble when the caucuses peered you think it is because of comments like that or something else? >> first of all, i think we need to recognize that we are still a ways away and the people who win in the caucus end up finishing strong so we need to see what is going to happen in january and who is going to have the momentum. [all talking at once] >> you have been around the block and you can see what works and what doesn't. >> he's not not the personality that usually appeals in iowa. people like people who are humble and hard-working. he is very bombastic and not at all humble. i think people are crying for leadership.
9:14 am
the fact that the president of the united states is underestimated the threat from isis the president has not united the country so i question whether hillary or trump are the ones to unite the country either. if you think what happened after pearl harbor and we still remember what franklin d roosevelt said, a day that will live in infamy. and he brought the country together to win world war ii. so what happened after september 11? george w. bush went to new york city and stood on the rubble of the world trade center and united our country against this threat from terrorists. we need that kind of leadership we are not seeing it from the white house. i think some people are attracted to trump because he is a strong and bombastic leader, but you also need someone who is diplomatic enough to work with other nations. we need to make sure that
9:15 am
and dignity. we should not deny someone admission to the united states just because of their religion. >> let's talk about ted cruz. congressman king endorsed him. is he a guy who you see social conservatives rallying around? he seems he will be a big player on caucus night unless he implodes here right? >> i think so. i hope congressman king can convince them that they had to be supportive of renewable fuels. a lot of jobs in iowa depend have depended on renewable fuels and he is been one of the most anti- renewable fuel so he will have to explain why he has sided with big oil and supported all of the subsidies for big oil and is so against supporting a level playing field and access for renewable fields fuels. >> if he wins what does that say?
9:16 am
much about renewables? >> i know he's got 50 fat we've got 50,000 people who have signed up and said they're going to caucus specifically on that issue. iowans from both parties see the benefit of the renewable fuels. we now produce more ethanol than we consume consuming gasoline and we are number one in terms of electric energy, we are high in biodiesel, we have two plants are already opened so this is important for good jobs, supporting our economy i really believe that steve king who represents the district needs to convince cruise that he needs to support this. george h --dash george w. bush renewable fuel standard. we believe that a robust renewable fuel standard gives us that gives us access to the
9:17 am
important not only to preserve those jobs but to grow the whole industry here in iowa. >> somme in your party don't think trump can become president or that ted cruz can become president. i would going to see the sort of similar but different and we saw in 2012 where folks coalesce on a social conservative side? i would going to see that with more of the business versus a stout establishment types around may be somewhat like rubio this time around or if they're looking at bush thinking he just will not play, kasich and christiane and playing playing hard so if you want to drop stop trump and cruz, isn't rubio the best bet? >> it is too early to say who is going to have that be the best bet going in but rubio is an attractive candidate. i was so impressed when i heard him speak for the first time but i would not count on bush or christie are kasich or any other
9:18 am
>> they're not really working at. >> not in iowa it. >> not in iowa. in new hampshire and union leader has endorsed christie tied for second place. i was his first to be really want to be bible you have to be in at least the top 45. but you'd better be somewhat competitive. >> is bullish on life bush on life support? >> i think he needs to do better than he has to date, but i know he is on tv with some pretty effective ads right now. we will see what he is doing and you still can't beat personal contact. i've told all of the candidates that. come here early and often, ideally go to all of the counties. this is where i think george clinton made a mistake.
9:19 am
honest answers to the people. >> she is more accessible now though. >> she started she had a disastrous launch and now she is
9:20 am
>> the governor k often one of wherever terry brands have branch i go someone else grant sanko someone else does also. >> first of all, congratulations governor, the longest-serving governor in our nation and what an inspiration you are. you are a tireless humble public official who has given so much to iowans and you've been a tremendous role model and i have been so blessed.
9:21 am
mentor or crowd and to know you and call you a friend i just want to say i want to look forward and look forward to the next four years to continue to see iowa grope you get grow. >> are you going to make sure she's the next governor? >> i've got my match in terms of enthusiasm and passion to serve. she has done some extraordinary jobs. she knows the budget backwards and four years forward them to spend an important part of our whole leadership team. >> as you look at however long you think you have an office, what do you think is still left to do? >> we initiated something called the nutrient reduction strategy a few years ago and we need to come up with a mechanism to provide ongoing permanent funding to protect the quality of iowa's water.
9:22 am
we want to protect that land but we also want to protect the water as well. we are blessed. we are not a desert state. we get an adequate amount of moisture and sometimes too much. we need to be able to manage that in ways that protect the public and be sure we continue to improve the quality of all water as well as the productivity of our land. >> you have been governor for 20 years but if you look back over the last 100 years wire with so slow growing? >> that is changing. if you look at dallas county, one of the fastest growing counties in the united states, through the entire 20th century we were very slow going state but our focus on economic
9:23 am
here are growth has improved in comparison to the rest of the country. despite that fact where making we're making progress. >> wets the best chance for the full term. >> i want to stay healthy and continued to continue to serve.
9:24 am
it time for the insiders quick picks with governor brand said. question number one, you have never lost an election but what election in your career did you sweat out the most.
9:25 am
crisis in 1986. >> question two, back in 1999 we set the record back when can we reach that again. >> we are three and a half right now. we're losing jobs. we haven't seen the ethanol expansion. as i said, if the federal government was a little more cooperative and we got strong removable fuels back in place i
9:26 am
bio industrial tax credit i would like to be able to break that to an a half percent record. i'm proud we went from eight to happen half to two and a half the first time. this time i think we went to two.eight and i think we are well on the way. >> i think the first person who talked about potentially running for reelection in 20 oh nine, who was the first person who pay a planted that seed in your head? you remember? >> bruce reston rested up with a group of people together in hardin county and that was during the summer but then i told you about these two young men who started a movement on facebook. >> that probably didn't happen to her first campaign. >> no. facebook didn't exist and they weren't old enough to vote but they got 10,000 people to sign up. my kids when they were teenagers did not like they are dad being governor but they even signed
9:27 am
plus i just could not stand the fact that we were using one-time money for ongoing expenses and the state was going in debt we had a governor who never met with the assize i iowa association of management of colleges and universities in four years. i couldn't believe that so we had a college president urging me to run. >> blue ribbon they can festival. tickets on sale. what's your favorite way to eat >> just plain bacon. you can have bacon and a lot of things and it's great but just plain bacon is great. >> question five, everyone talks about the mustache. when you think of someone with a mustache was the first person who comes to mind? >> the governor 100 years ago in iowa was governor clark. he is also came his grandfather and i have a bust of him behind the desk so i love look to show schoolkids to come to the
9:28 am
governor 100 years ago, george washington clark and he also had a mustache so i'm not the first. >> finally, your predictions. >> i will hawkeyes will win the rose bowl for the first time since 1959, and iowa state will be in the final foreign basketball. >> are you going to the rose bowl? >> we are still thinking about
9:29 am
i would love this sunday morning, donald trump's call to temporarily ban muslims from entering the country may have thrilled his supporters but it's disgust it had establishment. >> you really have no choice. it's so out of control. it's so terrible. >> why republicans fear a ticket headed by trump is a ticket headed for disaster. plus, could we be looking at
